How does “Follow Chess” stream live chess games?


The app is available at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pereira.live - this is a very popular app, but I"m not sure how the app gets live scores. I've searched all over the internet but cannot find any API that streams this
Well, first of all it, it might not be a public API. Quite possible that Fallow Chess agreed with chess24.com for cooperative work and the API is protected. The things you can do:
You can sniff your Android network traffic and see where the requests are going. Still if it is not public API, you can't use it.
The other thing you/they can do (which regarding to some terms and laws might be illegal !!) with a web crawler to fetch/process the data from the site and send it to the app. Firebase is a great technology for such cases.
The implementation is very simple... If there is a way that they can fetch data from external sources, they'll do it. Otherwise, they'll do the moves manually. Follow Chess is managed by a small team of Indian developers. They can just sit and relay the moves during the games.
PS: Follow Chess is not very popular, in particular when you compare it with what chess24 can offer.
